Event description

Description

We spend much of our lives striving to be something different from what we are, thinking that once we achieve that thing we will finally be content. As we grow, we’re moulded into believing we must be and look a certain way in order to be deserving of acceptance, love and connection.

And so, out of a primal fear of being abandoned, disconnected and alone, we chase after this physical mould. We fight and try to beat our bodies into submission somehow, willing them to transform into something different, some unachievable image of perfection.

But antime we strive for anything out of fear of our “not enough-ness”, that’s exactly what we get in each moment - feelings of “not enough-ness”. That goal turns into the next, and the next, and actually, it turns out we spend most of our lives living in that place of always searching to be something else and of never being enough - not good enough, smart enough, thin enough, beautiful enough. Never enough.

It’s exhausting.

Not to mention, rather miserable.

And here’ the truth: even if you did get that perfect body, if your way of thinking is steeped in “not enough”, you will ALWAYS feel inadequate.

But imagine, just for this moment, being wholly enough. As you are. Right now. No conditions. No caveats.

Imagine being enough.

You are.

You just have to break the circuit in your mind that says you aren’t, because it's lying to you.

You have to crack the armour, allowing real love and connection with yourself to come through.

Bare Yoga is one way to do just that. We're not offering a quick fix, but an opportunity to step outside your comfort zone and smash through some of your own mental barriers.

**

More than yoga sans clothes, this workshop is about feeling free in your body, about experiencing the kind of liberation that’s possible when we break out of our shame and guilt around our bodies.

It’s about seeing ourselves and other women in a new light - seeing all bodies as beautiful and exquisite, worthy of respect, reverence and care.

It's about changing your patterns and breaking you out of your body image prison - the one that keeps you small and stops you from living and loving whole-heartedly.

FAQs

What should I bring with me?

A robe or sarong, notebook, pen, water bottle and your own yoga mat.

If you don't have your own mat or would like a new one, you can purchase one from local creative That Mat Is Mine and pick it up on the day.

Is this a women only event?

Yes, in order to create a comfortable environment for participants only women can attend this workshop.

Are we nudists?

Nope, but we have experienced first-hand the incredible connection and liberation of taking the leap and allowing ourselves to be fully seen by other women.

Are we completely naked the whole time?

We will ease into being naked to make sure everyone feels as comfortable as possible.

Youll arrive at the studio dressed and then be invited to change into your gown or sarong for the workshop. We remove all our clothes during our yoga practice and then remain nude for remainder of the workshop.

What do I do if I’m menstruating?

Its all good, dont freak out. Were all women and its not exactly something that were unaccustomed to. There is no reason why you cant still attend the workshop if you feel comfortable.

Wear a tampon or a menstrual cup and know that its totally not a big deal to us. In saying that, its your personal choice and we completely respect your decision.

What level and type of yoga will we practice?

The yoga component of the workshop will be a gentle and restorative /Hatha yoga practice, suitable for complete beginners and advanced yogis and designed to make you feel calm and relaxed. The poses have been intentionally selected to take into account the fact that we will be nude and will be taught by a qualified yoga teacher.

Will I be photopgraphed?

No photographs will be taken during the workshop. There will be an opportunity to take a group shot at the end of class if this if how you choose to celebrate your experience, but there is no obligation.

Is there an age limit?

The minimum age for this event is 18.
